Lou Reed gone....

What an incredible loss. Here's one of my favorite recent songs from Lou Reed:

Lou Reed, a massively influential songwriter and guitarist who helped shape nearly fifty years of rock music, died today. The cause of his death has not yet been released, but Reed underwent a liver transplant in May.

  1. Hello John,

    I hope you may be able to help with this. Was it you who posted this recording to youtube back in 2014?
    ("Lou Reed Guess I'm Falling in love live")

    This has generated quite a bit of interest from Lou Reed and Velvet Underground fans recently, as it had been thought that there was no surviving recording of this particular performance from the Upbeat TV show.

    If it was you who posted this recording, would you be willing to share any information about it? For example, did you record it yourself at the time, and indeed do you have any other similar recordings? Anything you can share with us would be of great interest, and much appreciated.

    Many thanks,
